Sound on this recording is great! Bobby knocked Looks Like Rain out of the stadium...Jerry's licks in the back ground accentuated it greatly... These 93 shows were amongst my last with Jerry... but Glad I saw him before the decline... Saw the Giant Stadium shows before this show and solder field shows after... (thats a entirely different strange trip ;-) )

This show is a perfect example of how good the band sounded in 1992 and 1993. Vince was a crazy good keyboard player and the Dead had their whole sound totally dialed in by this time. A mind-blowing show indeed!

Subject: underrated show!
I did the entire summer tour, sans chicago, while holding down a job. I payed for my travels selling grilled cheese sandwiches and cold pops/water/snapple and my girlfriend made hippie ankle bracelets with bells and other beaded jewelery. I lived in the Thumb of michigan so after buckeye, drove back north, worked saturday, left that night, drove through canada to get to Orchard Park, which was kinda hard to find. Lots of woods/trees in the surrounding area. We finally got there, The buffalo bills in those days were kind of an AFC dynasty so it was cool to see such a huge stadium that I had seen many times watching nfl football., although I'm not sure if Giants or RFk were smaller, all three venues were lots of fun respectively.
I remember getting there and the gate was closed to the parking lot but there were a few of us already there partying outside the venue with tents next to our cars/buses. It was general admission so first comes first serve which goes for parking as well. We were definately parked on Shakedown street. I got a really bad sunburn the day of the show. We vended. Got in pretty early, my girlfriend wanted to see Sting. We layed out our blanket. Ate some purple blotter and coincidence Jerry sat in with sting on Purple haze. I had dosed at the first night palace show, which was very psychadelic, and this night was as well. The loser seemed really good and was better than Deer Creeks 6-23 version. The cowboy tunes left me feeling like I was in a west Texas town. The Broken Arrow was excellent, and in my opinion showcased Phil becoming more of the leader of this band. Maybe the best version ever. Every song he sang that summer was strong. The cassidy was cut short by Weir(big suprise) and a good Deal.
The second set started with what seemed like another Samson, although the first of the tour. Way to go sucks and always will. Vinces lack of having 'it' may have been the bordum/sell out vibe that pushed Jerry back into the Junk. Just an opinion(Brent was kind of a leader and would not put up with the kind of crap Weir and vince were pushing on the heads, after his death Bobby thought he was the 'leader' and hence the easy answer became the cheese. Any way, lazy river road was still new and it was apparent that the new songs were to be played at every stop of the tour, in some arrangement. The Looks like rain was Killer! Bobby with the sunglasses on and an acoustic guitar. It seemed cool and there was an awesome jam cresendo as the song came to an end. The truckin was cool with the 'up to Buffalo' verse, and some weird vibes came out of space with an almost scary other one, the way it used to scare me when Brent was around...complet with the healy vocal blur and accompanied by the huge screen set up digital meltdown. The days between was haunting, as noted. My first version as I missed the third night Rosemont spring tour. At the time I had a pretty good tape of Landover version so I knew the words. Johnny b goode was a suprise as well, almost like god telling us to be good or hell will rain down, as warned during other one. Again, this version is better than Deer Creeks second night second set closer. I fought the law gave us time to leave early to vend but had the same feel.. like we've been warned. Later during the tour I was 'saved' by ezekiel, a rainbow warrior when I was tripping balls in Louisville first night, which was the same weirdness. He put his hand on my shoulder, his eyes on fire and he told me that he forgave me, which was weird as I had never before met this gentleman. Any way, I remember bragging about this show the rest of the tour to my friends who didn't believe me, of course. Only one jerry tune pre durms actually has me wondering if I was crazy but listening to this very nice aud recording has reaffirmed my belief that this was a very underrated show for the tour.

Subject: Days Between
One of my the best Days I ever heard but other than that an unremarkable show. But where would I rather be? Huh? I ask you! Some highlights like Cassidy and Other One save it but this is a "touch of grey" show.

But the Days Between. Wow.

Subject: not too shabby
comparitively speaking, 1993 isn't the hottest year but this show, while not a blockbuster, is well played and consistently tight throughout and includes one of the finest 'broken arrow''s that the boys ever done did...also, this is the first show (after which it became a standard practice but usually in the 1st set) where bobby dons the acoustic for a tune (or two)

Subject: summer 93'
Underated show. Was a sunday stadium show ater the Friday night at Buckeye. Good set list. 9 song 1st set. Only Me&My Uncle- Mexicali, of the tour punctuated by some great Weir licks and a serious Midi Solo by Jer. Loser is also very good. Also the only Cassidy Deal of the tour. The Cassidy realy rocks Vinces keys have a Brent 84' tinge to them. The only problem is Bobby just cuts of the jam to early. Deal is solid
Second set is alot of fun LL Rain is awsome Jerry really goes of on that riff during the final segment way longer than usual.( Weir had to get his Elecric plugged back in) All in all a solid 3.5

Subject: 2nd show for me...
This was my 2nd show ever and unfortunately, my last show. I got "on the bus" very late!!! However, thanks to great sites like this, I can listen to all the jams I like!!! The sound quality of this show is very good but you can tell that the essence (heart of the band) isn't as strong as it was in years like 1977 or worries's all good!!

Subject: Touch of Grey again????
Really bummed out that downbeat was Touch. 2 years in a row..Anyways, took with me the memory of Jed, Long Way from Home, and mexicali blues. Due to temporary memory lapse; later on I realized the rest. What do you expect from open-air shows(80,000+ heads)? Great partying shows; but sound is what it is. Lots of great memories. Really miss the boys together when I hear this show. Thanks guys for the sourcing.

Subject: tea in the sahara
personal semtimrnts with this show include the tea in the sahara with Jerry joining Sting and his band. I was going through sort of a Synchronicity Phase with a good friend and (girl) friend so that hit home. At any rate, the show wasn't great but anyone who consistently went to Rich Stadium for summer shows, can agree with the fun that was had in that guys (or several families) backyards across the street from Rich. Just a big old PARTY fro two nights!!!!!!!!!!! If anybody can remember the huge bonfire not far back from the main guys house (where hje would allow freezing cold showers) let me know.. He came back the night before the show and was like" people don't let the fires get any higher than this (with his hand elevated at mid-chest). We were all out of our minds on one substance or another and we all said, "sure busy, no problem.." As such, the fire got even higher, albeit contained and safe and double the height of the tallest person dancin around the fire, and "we kept on dancin'" Very fun Buffalo stuff in every year there for me 90, 92, 93, etc.....

5-stars fro the fun party and camping adjacent to the lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Subject: Minglewood!!!
this show is nothing special more like on the bland side, but the fidelity of the recording certainly is (special)! one of those just exactly perfect "you nailed it" type of AUDs.
one of my favorite all time renditions, and definatly the best Vince era version i've ever heard.
Reviewer: J. Jonah Jameson - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 15, 2004
Subject: Very hot!
This is a sizzling hot AUD. It sounds better than a lot of cassette soundboards, Phil is very loud and crunchy. The performance is fairly routine, but solid. Bobby breaks out the acoustic for Looks Like Rain and it seems to give the song a real punch, the audience clearly loves it. This recording has what a lot of the late-era monitor mixes and soundboards lack, which is the excitement and feel of an actual live performance. The clarity of all the instruments is astounding. Simply put, download this.

this is a good sounding aud copy of this show. I had an 1st gen analog copy of this show taped on Nak 300's and it sounded more or less the same. Not a spectacular show by any means, but a good listen if you were there.personal highlights were broken arrow and a haunting days between.
